Judges Sometimes Like to Be Bureaucrats
Posted by David Zaring

When Adam Liptak wrote about the willingness of judges to play the role of charitable donors with left over class action settlement proceeds, it was news to me.  The schmancy new poli sci blog The Monkey Cage recommended that charities ramp up their "take a judge to lunch" program.  Heh.  But the whole "judges doing something different" concept is not an outlier, it's a meme.  Judges are by no means inevitably activist, but they're not just neutral arbiters either - sometimes, they revel in the opportunity to run an agency.  Other times, they prefer comedy.  And now they're doing charity.  Breaks up the workday at least.

Bonus: I like the Monkey Cage's quick hit take on favorite Serbian political aphorisms too.
